Dear Cereal Researchers,

We are excited to announce the release of Gramene V24 today. 

Complete release notes are available at: 

Items to note are in this new release include:

-Genomes: New repeat tracks. New mapped data added to alignments.
-Maps: Built from the Markers module, incorporates changes from 
markers, as well as several new and updated QTL maps.
-Markers: Mostly maintenance was performed.
-Proteins: New data
-Ontologies: QTL now associated with ontologies.
-Genes: Addition of siRNA genes, and more ontology associations.
-QTL: QTL are now annotated by ontologies, and many QTL have links to 
multiple mapping positions.
-Pathways: Many non-rice pathways have been removed.
-Diversity: New Data
-New species page for Brachypodium
-Gramene newsletter available in PDF

PLEASE NOTE: In order to provide timely information the tutorials 
have not been updated to for V24. Tutorials are still available from 
the previous release (V 23), and updated tutorials will be made 
available shortly.  New tutorials will be announced when they are 

We are presenting several upcoming posters at various meetings and 
are co-hosting a database workshop with MaizeGDB at the Maize 
Genetics Conference in March.

The Gramene Database Team

Gramene(www.gramene.org) is a curated, open-source, web-accessible 
data resource for comparative genome analysis in the grasses. Our 
goal is to facilitate the study of cross-species homology 
relationships using information derived from public projects involved 
in genomic and EST sequencing, protein structure and function 
analysis, genetic and physical mapping, interpretation of biochemical 
pathways, gene and QTL localization and descriptions of phenotypic 
characters and mutations.

This work is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the
USDA-Agricultural Research Service, and was previously funded by the USDA
Initiative for Future Agriculture and Food Systems (IFAFS). We are thankful
to numerous collaborators and contributors for help in curation and for
sharing their datasets and tools.
